    Strolling through the gun show this weekend

    Don’t normally see Dan Wesson’s at gun shows, today I saw 2 DW revolvers.

    Saw a Model 15-2 w/10 inch barrel in fabulous shape, asking $650.

    Then as I was about to leave I spied a pistol pack in the case; 15-2 wearing an 8 incher, spare 6, 4, 2 ˝ inch barrels (everything looked like new), extra grip, barrel tool, 4 or 5 extra front sight blades, asking $975!

    Me, I had just blown my 2nd job gun budget on a used Marlin 880 SS bolt action rifle, Stainless, heavy barrel, 22LR with a Simmons Whitetail scope (5-8x36);

    and a new SP101 357Mag (cc/contoured hammer);

    and a S&W 36 no dash (Chief’s Special) in nickel, round butt. Checking the serial number on the net I figure it is a 1982 model.

    Oh well, I was happy… but it sure would be nice to have a bottomless money bag!
    Planning on taking pics tomorrow but may go to the range instead

    It'd be nice to have a money bag, bottomless or not. Nice shopping by the way.

    I was at a gun show in WPB on Saturday and didn't see anything interesting for a change. Glad you did and enjoy your new friends!

    Nice, gotta love those DW revolvers. I have a 15-2 Pistol Pack that I scored last year and I love that gun, especially now that I got custom wood grips for it. The presentation grips may look nice but I do not like how they feel in my hand.

    Went to the range today. Very pleased with the SP101 and S&W 36. Got 75 rounds through the Ruger SP101 and 25 in the Smitty with no problems.
    Smitty was brutal with the +P's. I did get some Pachmayr compac professional grips for the 36 that should help with shooting comfort. Haven't tried them yet though. That SP101 is sweet!

    Yikes,
    a pistol-pak in LN condition for that price??

    Should have sold a small child or something to get it at that price.
    It/they sell for $1500+ on GB.
    Somebody got a steal.

    Heres pics of my DW 15-2VH 6in. barrel.
    As I've said before, all the tea in CHina would not be enough to buy it from me.

    Thanks, I've always admired stainless guns but never owned one before. Now with one in stainless and another in nickel... I'm walking in the clouds!
